Once we left the boat we needed some serious time on land and decided to create our own “punch crawl”. Similar to Canadian “pub crawl” but we samples a rum punch from a serious of bars along Placencia beach.
One of our favourites was the Typsy Tuna, we had heard about it along our travels and we were there for happy hour, and it lived up to it’s name. As you can see one of my photos was in fact tipsy, although this was the first stop on the punch crawl, maybe from all the time aboard the boat!
The food was tasty and reasonably priced. After a few more stops we ended up back at Under da ‘Tatch, a small restaurant with cabanas on the beach where we had previously eaten so therefore an amazing meal would be assured.
Placencia having one of the smallest streets in the world and a serious of concrete board walks throughout – most likely for mud, flooding in the off season – was a neat place to explore. It was well equipped but still had sandy streets and felt like a dusty backpacker town. Let’s hope it stays like this for years to come, even with the ensuing international airport nearby. At least cruise ships will have to keep out as the waters are far too shallow to navigate in those big behemoths. There is a small channel dredged to the south, but by no means to support a cruise ship. But we are industrious lets just hope we can also be responsible and maintain the reasons people want to go there in the first place.
